Can someone advise me as to whether the 1933 film "Night Of Terror", with Bela Lugosi, is in Public Domain or not?

Some info on the movie here:

The film is not public domain. It was released in 1933 and registered with the copyright office LP3811. The film's copyright was renewed in 1960 R256467.

Thank you for your time in checking that out for me, Video-Cellar.

It doesn't seem to be on any authorized DVD release from what I can tell. Too bad - for Lugosi & Old Dark House-type film fans it would be a nice addition in a compilation release.

There are some unauthorized DVDs if you look around. The quality is decent, but not up to studio standards. I wonder if the studios actually have archival quality negatives or prints. They really should release it in a good edition.
